We popped in here for breakfast and were really glad that we did! Fantastic location right on the water, so relaxing. The menu is great, wide selection of everything you can think of in terms of breakfast. (They do lots of other food also). We had a really relaxing time in here, highly recommended, the staff are really friendly too... More

Came here on a Saturday afternoon with my other half. Firstly, I ordered a panini with mozarella, tomato and pesto to be told there was no pesto and the panini machine was broken. (How hard is it to order a jar of pesto when the old one is running low?) My other half ordered a chicken bacon and stilton baguette... More

Lovely atmosphere, nice cake, good tea. Nicely situated with waterfront views and convenient for a stop-off before returning to the mainland.

Visited twice - first visit was for cream tea. Basic but good. Then returned to have their crab sandwiches which came with a decent sized salad. Very good.

Popped in here for a coffee and a slice of cake. Unfortunately my friends forgot my coffee so I went in to get my own. I walked out after waiting nearly 15 minutes. There were only 2 people in front of me. No-one acknowledged me and the frustrating part was that there were more staff clearing tables than serving. Such... More

I have recently moved to the area and have used this cafe a few times already. Each time it has been very good. The majority of staff are really friendly and the food orders are always correct. Myself and a friend visited last weekend and it was a VERY busy breakfast time and the staff were great at informing us... More

Nice little place overlooking the harbour so planty of sea views. Plenty of choice of freshly made sandwiches and snacks all appears to be fresh local produce and reasonably priced too. Nice friendly atmosphere always seems very busy so must be good.
